This reminded me of the end of one session at a Whitsun weekend in Delft
when Bill Zobel was stressing the importance of warmdowns and
explaining the physiology above. He also suggested that massage and
warm baths further assisted in this process. At this point the less than
young lady standing beside us turned to me and said "I believe sex is very
good as well." Lost for words doesnt begin to describe me but perhaps a
physiologist out there could tell me if she was correct.
